Re: The barons restoration. 1970 fasty.

Today I shocked myseld when I realised that its SEVEN years since the restoration. By way of an update, I had the fasty out today and seven years on she is still looking pretty good I think; https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7386/13931068412_4823997ca7_z.jpg Fastback out of hibernation. by route9autos....

You are doing an epic job there, keep going.
I remember this car from a few shows I managed to make it too and its easily the best looking Type 4 I have seen, wheels suit it perfectly.

Thanks Kyle.

The front splitter is just a Kamei spoiler from a beetle with a few brackets made from old number plates to keep it the right shape and weakened so that the brackets will break if I clip a kerb or something rather than the spoiler.

Cheers Shawn, I got the stripes about 3 years ago off ebay but Im sure that any sign shop could make you a set with whatever you want on them. If you want the stripe width and spacing measured to get the stripes right let me know and I will get a ruler out. And yes, when parked on the new drive the ...

I have to admit that something about the stripes was annoying me so I went and got some extra stripe cut to put between the rear arch and the text; http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v335/BTJustice/type%203%20pics/insurancepics016.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v335/BTJustice/type%203%20pics/i...

Nice sunny day so I decided to try something. I bought a set of Type 3 side stripes long before the car got painted but never got round to sticking them on before paint and was too scared to do it after paint. Today I got brave. The car went from looking like this; http://img.photobucket.com/albums/...

I dont think there is a catch, i think they are cheaper as they hold less appeal to most people than a beetle. Lots of people who know nothing about cars know what a beetle is but not many folk know what a type 3 is so less demant = lower price. I had a square back before my fasty that cost me £100 ...

No way, thats a nightmare. Hows the pillar and the sill and is it getting fixed?

One of the reasons I picked up a Vento for the winter was being paranoid about somebody else hitting me.

Hope it all gets sorted out and see if you can get the car de-magnetised so it dosnt happen again.
